Provincial Council promotes the autonomy of the elderly with digital training workshops

Today, Thursday 30 May, the Provincial Council of Almeria will resume the Digital Training Project for the Elderly, which is part of line 3 of the Promotion of Autonomy of the Provincial Plan of Community Social Services. This document is the roadmap that establishes a series of measures to respond to social needs.

The aim of this initiative is to facilitate access to a basic need for the elderly in the smallest municipalities: access to the internet and digital tools. In this regard, the vice-president and deputy for Social Welfare, Ángel Escobar, explained that “the elderly need digital training and sufficient skills to be autonomous and not depend on others to be able to access new technologies”.

In this regard, he explained that the project, which began last year, is aimed at elderly people from municipalities with less than 1,000 inhabitants, who participate in the Active Ageing workshops.

Since June, a total of 20 workshops have been held, with great participation by the elderly, who are showing their interest in the activity. The total number of participants in this edition amounts to more than 200 people. A second phase is also planned, which will start at the beginning of September, to cover the rest of the municipalities of the province with the aim of continuing with the digitalisation of the elderly people of Almeria.

The implementation of this project will be carried out in close collaboration between the Provincial Council of Almeria, Community Social Services Centres and the Town Councils of the beneficiary municipalities.
